LightBox Photographic Gallery was established in June 2009 to provide a center for the promotion of creative and alternative photography on the North Coast of Oregon. LightBox provides a venue where photographic artists may exhibit their work, share their vision, and inspire other photographers and individuals. LightBox strives to exhibit a diversity of photographic styles and processes, to educate in these techniques and methods, and to influence the community in the recognition of photography as fine art. LightBox encourages the continued use of film, traditional photographic methods, historical alternative processes and seeks to discover and recognize the finest works in digital photography. LightBox serves as a gathering place for photographers and individuals who appreciate fine photography and has brought together many who had not previously had an opportunity to meet. We enjoy each and every day meeting all those who come into the gallery. We are proud to have brought this resource to Astoria and to have experienced and shared the vision of so many unique individual artists.
Aesthetic, cultural, and social works are among the art displayed by the Wiseman Gallery. Exhibits range from works by local artists to national artists of emerging importance. A variety of media and styles are presented to inspire and educate the viewer. Annual exhibits include the student and faculty shows.

Black Box Gallery is dedicated to the exhibition of contemporary photography. Black Boxís juried group photography exhibitions provide important opportunities for emerging and established photographers. Black Box supports and encourages the creative production, exhibition and critical appreciation for contemporary photography. Each month Black Box hosts a juried group photography show on a different photograhic theme. The gallery provides free printing, matting and framing for all of our photographers who are juried into the exhibition. This allows the gallery to provide a consistant aesthetic during our group show programming throughout the year. It also allows our audience to view the pictures as a cohesive group photography exhibiton. Many of our photographers range from Russia, Germany, Japan, New York, Chicago, London, San Francisco, Korea, Iceland, Los Angeles, Portland, Austraila, China, Houston, Seattle and everywhere inbetween. The gallery is dedicated to supporting and promoting a thoughtfully curated visual photographic experience for our gallery, our photographers and our audience. Black Box also catalogs and archives all of our juried group photography exhibitions into our flat files at the gallery after the exhibition. This also allows the gallery to continue to promote our juried photographers to local curators, collectors, and the general viewing public. Black Box Gallery also hosts short exhibitions of local Portland photographers throughout the year. So keep an eye on our programming to see local photographers showcased in smaller group shows and solo shows. Generally these shows are programmed over a short weekend at the end of a month, with artist receptions on a Saturday evening. So join our mailing list to stay intouch with what is going on at Black Box Gallery.

In 1996 gallery owner Jane Beebe opened PDX Contemporary Art in Portlandís developing Pearl district. The previous nine years Beebe worked at Jamison/Thomas Gallery for the much admired William Jamison until his untimely death. The first PDX location in a new building, was a small, beautiful, innovative space designed by award winning architect, Brad Cloepfil of Allied Works Architecture. By the fall of 2005, PDX and the represented artists had grown and it was time to move into a much larger space. In 2006 PDX opened a beautiful new space, also designed by Allied Works, in its current location of 925 NW Flanders St. PDX continues to show work that, as Beebe says, "has a slight conceptual edge. It is personal work which is both intellectually and visually satisfying."
